"I don't draw because I love to draw. I don't draw because I draw well. I draw because once, I lost something - and by drawing, I will find it again."

Reviews

It's impossible not to admire both [Finck's] ambition and the beautiful economy of her line drawings... There is a resonant truth at the heart of this book, and it soars above everything else. -- Rachel Cooke * Observer *
Strangely compelling... gorgeous. -- Teddy Jamieson * Herald Scotland, **Books of the Year** *
In its ambition, framing, and multiple layers, [Passing for Human] raises the bar for graphic narrative. Even fans of [Liana Finck's] work in the New Yorker will be blindsided by this outstanding book. * Kirkus Review *
A beautiful, fictionalised memoir combines intelligence and appealingly scratchy artwork with serious soul-searching. * Guardian, 50 of the Biggest Books to Look Out For in Autumn 2018 *
A sure hit for readers of graphic memoirs. * Booklist *
